HEADING HOME

Maybe it was a long road
Or a short road
That took a long while
To wander down

Down along the blue-green pines
& the trumpet vines
With dusty shoes
& shadow lines

I heard you’re heading back home now…
I heard you’re heading back home

Against a smoky dawn
With a soldier’s song
Steadily holding out
& holding on

Suddenly I remember when
You shook your head
& storm clouds gathered
Around your bed

Was it sunset or sunrise?
Was it in the sky above or in your eyes
That I saw the traces of
The smiles of love?

I heard you’re heading back home now…
I heard you’re heading back home

The crossing down
Like an acrobat of this & that
A circus wire, the perfect act
Falling endlessly

Unworldly, like the Day Lilly
Moving slowly
Under the cover of
The mountain trees

Trains & bells & hurricanes
& numbers lined up
In dirty lanes
Driving down the interstate

I heard you’re heading back home now…
I heard you’re heading back home

Guitar strings & ammunition
Metals, meadows & intuition
Passing quietly
Like a season

Dancing like a little boy
& an old man
Side by side
Hand in hand

I heard you’re heading back home now…
I heard you’re heading back home
